We stand with Black Lives Matter and those protesting for equality and reform. We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

Prior relief and support funds for small businesses and artists: NACF’s Native Arts Emergency Support Project, Portland Small Business Relief Fund, Portland Area Artist Emergency Relief Fund, RACC’s  Emergency Artist Relief Fund, RACC’s page for relief resources (and updated here), RACC’s COVID-19 relief Support Beam, Literary Arts’ Booth Emergency Fund for Writers, and Oregon Humanities’ emergency funding for organizations.

Gov. Kate Brown’s “stay at home” order still largely remains in effect for Portland area businesses and gatherings (though other counties have some limitations lifted). See also this FAQ from OPB. Until the order is completely lifted for Multnomah county, you can assume all in-person readings and events have been cancelled.

For details regarding specific events please contact the organizers or venues. If you are an organizer or venue and would like to reach out to us please feel free to contact us or submit an event using our submission form. We’d love to hear from you!
